    what is the difference in a Maj7 chord and a regular 7th chord?

    I am having trouble understanding the difference between a Maj 7th Chord and a dominant 7th chord. for example- In the key of CMaj, the I and IV positions are listed as "Maj7" but the V position is list as only a "G7", yet the notes of the chord are that of a Gmaj add the 7th... I don't get it. Can any of you musicologists out there shed some light on the difference...?
    Thank you in advance for your valuable time in the matter .
